ROLLING STONE guitarist Ronnie Wood is in mourning after learning his first wife has died of a suspected drug overdose.

Ex-model KRISSY WOOD, who has a 27-year-old son with the START ME UP rocker and was married to him from 1971 to 1978, was found dead on a sofa in a friend's London flat.

Friends believe the newly-single 57-year-old accidentally overdosed on Valium she was taking to combat her depression, writes British newspaper THE SUN.

Pal FIONA CAREY tells the publication, "Krissy was really upset - as low as I have ever seen her.

"I woke up and saw her slumped on the sofa. I rang (emergency number) 999. The ambulance crew said it looked like an overdose.

"She has died far too young."

Ronnie is said to be "devastated" by the news.
